This is my name, and though other forms of it are quite common, I've only met two other girls in my life who share this spelling. I think it's absolutely beautiful and have always been proud to bear it.

To me, this is the best way to spell Caitlyn.

I LOVE my name and I think it is a cute name. Every time I'm at school or something people always spell it the wrong way or if I go into a gift shop, they do not have the right spelling.

Caitlyn is my name and I absolutely love its spelling. I've only ever met 1 with the same spelling. In school I've never had a teacher spell it right.

I adore the name Caitlyn, with the nickname Cait/Cate.

I like this name, and this spelling. I used to like Katelyn more, but now that spelling is becoming too popular for me, and when I looked at this spelling closer one day, I realized I like it better than Caitlyn. I also like Caitlin and Caitlynn!

This is my name. I prefer the spelling, however at my school of 453 girls, there are 5 in the choir with the same spelt this way.

It's amusing that most people who respond positively to this name are girls bearing it. Biased much?

Use Caitlin if you have to. Caitlyn looks juvenile.

I only know two girls with this spelling. If you like this name, I would suggest using Caitlyn, Caitlin, or Katelyn. Kaitlyn and Kaity are just so overly used!

I just can't see the need to spell it with a Y.

This is my name. Despite being born during the great Caitlyn/Caitlin/Katelyn/etc. boom of the late 80s, I have grown to like it. My dad wanted me named after his sister Lynn. Since she died in an accident at age 18, my superstitious mother compromised with Kaitlynn. Eventually they picked the Caitlyn spelling, which I've grown to love. They gave me an old-lady middle name after my great grandma though, just in case. I'm just relieved not to be another Caitlin/Katelyn Marie.

I spell my name Caitlynn, it seem perfectly easy to me to spell. I have never met anyone else that spells it this way. I am only 23 however so maybe I will someday. To me may name is like two words put together. Cait and Lynn, It seems classic to me. I would not like it if it was spelled with a k instead of a c. I have gone by nicknames such as Cait and caitie. This name works well for various age groups. As a child I went by more of my nicknames and as an adult I go by my full name.

Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner, is an Olympic track and field athlete. She broke the record for fastest time to gain one million Twitter followers (4 hours).

This is probably the least annoying misspelling of Caitlin, but it's still bad, and unfortunately people are going to associate it with Caitlyn Jenner. Plus it looks ridiculous on a 65-year-old woman.

My name used to be this. To be honest, I always hated it. I am a biker chick and it seems too "prim and proper" to me. I changed my name years ago. And I am happy I did. The only good thing about this name is Caitlyn Jenner :-)
Hepzibah Nanna  2/11/2016
This name isn't too bad. I just really don't care for any "C" spellings and the fact that this particular spelling is going to be associated with some repulsive 60 something year old he-she. I hope to god this spelling doesn't spike in popularity because of him.

I don't think it's that bad, and I've seen plenty of worse spelling variants of Caitlin. Unfortunately I'm afraid it's going to be associated with the annoying and extremely overexposed Caitlyn Jenner.

Caitlyn Swift is the real name of the woman going by the alias of Susan Hart in the British drama Ripper Street.
kveidt  5/7/2016
This is not the worst trendy butchering of Caitlin (that title belongs to garbage like Keightlynne or Cahtelinne) but it looks unintelligent and made up compared to the original spelling.
ERK  12/8/2016
I've always hated Caitlin and its plethora of misspellings, and then there's that annoying creep Caitlyn Jenner. Considering back when he was Bruce he got his kicks from wearing his stepdaughters' underwear while they were out of the house, I don't think this is something you'd want to name your kid after.
Acajou  4/23/2017
Okay, if y'all are annoyed with the name being affiliated with Kaitlyn Jenner, maybe not give her attention? Like she's just one bearer of the name; if you're so dense (or more likely transphobic) that you think naming your kid a name some pop culture twitter celebrity has will have some bad effect on them, I truly wonder how you manage not to forget to breathe.
